How do you rank music that hasn’t even been released (or leaked) yet? These lists are beyond silly now.
And this is why I’m an anti-capitalist. Money always corrupts good intentions.
I’m saying though…
What you really meant: “I don’t know why all of this BLACK music is on here”
Two words: Hipster trends.
Stereogum is just as trendy as the rest of them. I’m so tired these alternative publications that are all over something one minute and over it in the next.
The omission of Animal Collective is unforgivable.
Rolling Stone has become quite inclusive of indie music over the last 10 years. Criticizing for the sake of criticizing in this little indiespehere of ours is beyond cliche. All of these lists are subjective anyway. Nobody ever will be correct. Rename your lists- “Albums I Liked This Year” and it’ll be more accurate.
This list is garbage by the way, and the rankings are all fucked up. I’ll pass.
You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. FOH.
This list says SOOOO much about the people who created it. I disapprove.
It’s too early for these lists. They could at least wait until December, damn.
Colder than a polar bear’s toenails. I’m loving hip-hop right now.
Absolutely brilliant. She’s always cutting edge, always ahead of the curve. I love this woman.
A lot of kids are going to treat this album as the trendy flavor of the month, especially with the Pitchfork co-sign. But I want to state this- for a lot of us who grew up in South Los Angeles or who came from the inner-city- this is our story, our reality.. There are a lot of alternative kids of color who come from neighborhoods like the one featured on this album. This album resonates a lot deeper for people who experienced what Kendrick experienced and knows exactly what it feels like to come from that environment, that city, that hood. Just wanted to clarify that for some of us, this is more than just music. It’s artistry takes it to another level of appreciation. The bar has been raised.
Also, for those still confused with the narrative, I have a detailed analysis in my review: http://atribecalledx.com/2012/10/30/kendrick-lamar-good-kid-m-a-a-d-city-album-review/
Great show! Great visuals, strong performance- it was really great. Andrew- if you can find footage of the opening performer covering Thom Yorke’s “Atoms for Peace,” through that up- it was a solid acoustic cover with piano and cello.
Going to see him in Hollywood tomorrow. I’ll give feedback on the show. I am excited for this.
More reason for people to be out on the streets. Apathy is a cancer in this country.
And yet another reaosn why we need to fucking legalize it already. Christ. And God, I hate Texas and its totalitarian oppressive ways.
It’s a classic. Nas always will be at the top of his game, even when he seems aimless.
More corporate capitalistic bullshit and people will continue to eat out of Goldenvoice’s hands because they are trained to be thoughtless consumers.
Man, Frankie is brilliant. This is the kind of music I get down to. I’m loving this!
Queer boys of color really need visibility and support, the lack of it is the reason why so many of us are still closeted. I’m hella proud of Frank for having the courage to be out and open and true to himself with no compromise, not even with mainstream success. This is great news. :)
